When life gives you lemons…make lemonade!

It is no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has quickly and drastically changed people’s lives across the globe. But this doesn’t mean productivity or creativity needs to stall.

If you are a student and are finding you have more free time, think of this as a golden opportunity to do something creative and productive.

Instead of scrolling through Instagram, or becoming addicted to a new Netflix show, the Stu Clark Centre for Entrepreneurship (SCCE) challenges you to consider starting your own business.

“We hear so often that a lot of people dream of being an entrepreneur, but never have enough time to take proper steps towards creating their own venture,” says SCCE Program Coordinator, Amy Jones. “We urge you to use some of your free time to ramp up your brainstorming on what you could do for your business.”

If you are curious about exploring a potential business idea during these next few weeks, the SCCE has a fantastic and FREE resource for all students at the University of Manitoba; the Venture Coach.

Josh Zaporzan [BComm(Hons)/16] is the SCCE’s Venture Coach and meets with students to discuss their venture at any stage. No idea is too big, or too small to meet with Zaporzan .

Due to the temporary closing of the University, Zaporzan is taking video meetings online with Zoom on Tuesday and Wednesday’s.

“During this unusual time, Zoom has helped keep me connected to students and the ability to further provide quality meetings and guidance to those that are using this time while at home and practicing social distancing to continue to innovate, be creative and pursue their business ventures,” says Zaprozan.
